The second best way to experience nature

Obviously getting off your butt and going outside is the preferred method to experience the splendor of our natural world but when those adventures are met with road blocks such as todays dreary weather (I know. I'm a wuss.) it's good to know that websites like exist.

With new high definition video of wildlife from around the world available daily, Earth-Touch is the best nature website that I have found. Possibly greater than the beautiful high quality footage is the narration, or more accurately, the limited narration. Just a brief description of what you are seeing. No over dramatizing or dumbing down.

They also have a weekly highlights podcast on itunes. Which could be very valuable on our upcoming plane ride, should we decide to include the computer in our carry-on arsenal.
